Darin E. Fields' Astrophotography Pages

Film Gallery--Alnitak, Horsehead, and Flame Nebula

14 minute exposure with the 8" newtonian on Kodak Royal Gold Select 400. This image was manually guided using a b/w quickcam and the QCV2 software which has a crosshair function. Last shot of the night, I thought what the heck, I'll point the scope at Alnitak and see how much I can capture.
This is the same exposure reprocessed to enhance the red nebulosity. For this image I processed the red channel separately using two separate iamges that were combined for the red channel.
